But seriously, I have no idea what I'm doing.
So after a lovely 4K-word start, I only wrote 52 words yesterday. But as I mentioned earlier, and as Justine Larbalestier wisely notes today, word count is not everything. I had some mulling to do over where my story is going. I still have some mulling to do.
And, I think I might use some tricks to help me keep my characters more firmly in my mind... yesterday they were a little too elusive. I think I'll try to figure out their character mottos and maybe also do some internet casting. Maybe I'll try to get some inspiration from a favorite novel.
Maybe I'll log off the dang internet and write.
There's a special NaNoWriMo podcast episode of I Should Be Writing available now... go give it a listen, while I try to finish up the show notes!
Tomorrow: I have some thoughts about the writing class I went to yesterday, and I think I'm going to put out some tough love about critiquing...
